M50 Art Hotel is located in Pingle, Sichuan. Related to the local culture, Pingle is planned to be a music theme town. Therefore, the starting point of this project is around music. Further exploring the local genes, MUDA-Architects learnt that one of a well-circulated love stories happened here, and Guqin “Lv Yi” was the love token. So MUDA-Architects abstract the action of playing the guqin into architectural form. When the strings solidify at the climax of the movement, the final form of the building is obtained.
